BIOGRAPHY

(1954-2014)
London-born artist Chris Bracey worked with neon and lights for over thirty years. His father, a neon sign-maker for fairgrounds, arcades, and the like, taught Bracey the trade at an early age. Bracey, in turn, salvaged lights, signs, and other objects and re-purposed them into his signature pieces.

Having made his mark in the Soho district in London, Bracey’s works have been exhibited in the UK, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York. His creations are in multiple public collections, have featured prominently in films, and may be found in the private collections of Vivienne Westwood, Stella McCartney, David LaChapelle, and more.

Bracey's works were included in the Cornell Museum's "Lit" exhibit in 2016.

* Long-Sharp Gallery is honored to represent the works of Chris Bracey in the United States.
